After years of speculation, Jacqueline Laurita recently outed Melissa Gorga for having four nose jobs during that epic Vermont trip episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Melissa finally addressed the rumors during Sunday night’s episode admitting to just one nose job, after years of sidestepping the question.

Melissa told viewers, “Let’s be honest, it’s the worst-kept secret that I’ve had a nose job, but it’s my secret to tell, not hers.”

The Envy by Melissa Gorga boutique owner is now telling  Bravo’s The Daily Dish why she’s been keeping her plastic surgery a secret for so long.

“It’s a personal thing,” she says. “It’s not hurting anyone. It’s your own business. Some people like to say, ‘Hey, I injected this, tummy tucked this,’ and that’s fine, too. It’s something that’s personal to me. It’s one of the very few things that is personal in my life at this point.”

She adds, “I have children, and there are certain things I don’t feel like I need to blurt all over the world. That’s private, it has to do with me, myself and I. That was one of the things I wanted to keep to myself. Unfortunately, I had a crappy friend who has told the world for me.”

The mom-of-three also confirms that she did not have multiple procedures done. “There was definitely not four nose jobs. Four nose jobs? I would look pretty deranged, I would think,” she says. “That is insane to say four, and I don’t like that the seed was even planted, because I think that’s wrong. You never know what’s going to happen in life. That’s why they say ‘friends come and go, but family is forever.’ And that is so true.”
